The first banner is done!!! I unfurled it, all thirty feet, and brought it a couple blocks away to the Bellingham Ferry Terminal, where the Alaska Ferry docks every Friday. It's the tallest spot I could think of. I hung the banner over the balcony and still could only see 2/3rds of it at a time. But it looks good. The colors seem to work well together and it has the unity I desire.
It's interesting working on a piece when you can't see the whole thing at one time until it's done. Takes some faith, and maybe a bit of magic and mystery.Mostly faith I guess. The magic and mystery happen because of the faith.
Interested in painting? I work with oils, acrylics,watercolor, silk dye on silk, and stained glass. My work tends towards realism, a titch towards magic realism, and definitely towards the colorful and emotional.
Interested in public art? I work a lot with churches, as I believe that art can change the world. Churches at their best are venues for radical cultural change. My artistic goal in making art for churches is to help tie the rhythms, beauty and wisdom of sacred creation back into our humanly constructed sacred spaces.
